This is wonderfully done! A fresh take on a guide to wine. Witty, whimsical, dually high brow and low brow, for people really into wine or just want to learn a little more. I love how the writer "splained" a little about herself and why I should be reading this book. From there on feels like a journey with Vanessa Price through endless delights.
Have a burger, a glass of wine and enjoy this book!
This is the true story, of 12 wine styles, picked to go with everyday food, work together, and have their pairings documented. Find out what happens, when wine stops being polite and starts getting real…
This is the perfect wine roadmap for wine novices like me. No longer is wine for fine dining with strange rituals. Big Macs & Burgundy shakes things up. The next time I enjoy my seasonal favorite, pumpkin pie, I’ll make sure it’s accompanied by a Rutherglen Muscat.
I don’t know much about wine and this book simplified it for me! It also made choosing snacks for my Netflix binges a lot easier to pair with what I have in the wine fridge. It’s educational and easy to follow! The photos are beautiful!
This book is a must for any wine and food lover! It’s bright and cheerful - filled with incredible USEFUL pairings (priced high to low), informative advice along the way (to surely help make you sound more wise at your next dinner sitting), entertaining personal tales, and fun, cheeky photographs. It’s refreshingly approachable for a topic/category that can often feel daunting. Can’t wait to buy for friends + family this holiday season - just the right price to share with a bottle of the vino!
Grab yourself a bag of Cheetos because this book is awesome, full stop. Author and wine extraordinaire Vanessa Price takes readers on an epicurean rollercoaster sloshed with Chenin Blanc (natty wine kidz approved) and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, tying in her Southern roots and kick-through-the-door attitude (she was a wine sales rep after all) to shake up the typical yawn-inducing wine lit category. Beautiful illustrations complement an informative and fun read for enthusiasts and anyone harboring ambitions to up their pairing game and learn the quirks and features of wine—decanting, understanding a wine list, pronouncing Gewürztraminer... you get the idea!
Fun and informative and a complete pleasure to read—the quality of the actual printed book along with the illustrations and photography is simply stunning. My gift giving this season just got a lot easier!
I've read a lot of books about wine so was pleasantly surprised to find one that puts a fresh and interesting spin on the genre of food and wine pairings. The book is written in an entertaining, witty and whimsical style but offers even the most devoted wine lovers plenty of intellectual wine heft to draw us in. The author Vanessa Price's accessible wit, warmth and impressive breadth of wine knowledge shine through on each of the suggested wine and food pairings. I've been having a blast working my way through each and every recommendation! Chablis and seaweed snacks... who knew?? Highly recommend and this is a great stocking stuffer idea for the holidays coming up!
A beautiful book with smart and clever writing - very educational but will make you smile from cover to cover. I cannot wait to share it with friends - it makes a perfect holiday gift for the foodie wine-lover in your life!
